do something drastic... drop the plastic!

in case you needed more reasons to ditch plastic bags, and all forms of odious one-time use plastic, here are 50 reasons!

also, today i had a special moment at work. we were under the wire to finish an important project, and my boss brought around coconut water to thank us for our dedication. she brought everyone else's in a paper cup, and mine in a mug! (nevermind that the coconut water probably came in a loathsome tetra pak.) i couldn't believe it-- i thought i was a closeted plastic dieter but i have successfully branded myself as someone who doesn't like waste. mom, are you reading this, are you so proud??

and Plastic is Forever has inspired our first spin-off blog! check it out:

aww, thanks for the shout out guys! see how you're inspiring positive change? i have lots of questions though...what about Band Aids? I think that's important plastic that prevents infection...

Yes, but don't they make those cloth like woven ones anymore, I remember them not being has been a long time since I bought Band Aids...
Also baking soda seems to be the miracle cure maybe a baking soda and water paste patch would work-jk-don't lose a limb! But I bet if we ban together we can find an alternative.

That was too easy-give me something harder :)
